How Does Auto Air Conditioning Work?
There are basically five steps to explain how auto air conditioning works:
- The compressor, powered by your engine, compresses a refrigerant gas (Freon) which becomes very hot and is then sent through a set of coils to the condenser.
- In the condenser, heat is separated from the gas. Hot air is released through the top of the condenser, while the rest of the gas in condensed into a cool liquid.
- After the condenser, cars either have a receiver-drier or an accumulator that makes sure only liquid refrigerant goes to the expansion valve.
- The expansion valve (or orifice tube in some cars), is what regulates the flow of liquid to the evaporator and is what you are controlling when you adjsut the temperature settings on your dashboard for your car air conditioner.
- The evaporator is the last stop for the cool liquid before you feel it in your car. After the liquid passes through the expansion valve, fans blow the cool air from the evaporator throughout your car.
